As a result of the COVID-19, many employers are forced to discharge their workers – either temporary or permanently, leaving many people jobless during these testing times. However, there are some industries that are hiring. And not only for limited vacant positions but employing for hundreds and even thousands of positions.
With a majority of the world facing some intensity of lockdown in their regions for indefinite periods, the people are scrambling to fill their homes with the necessary groceries and other household supplies. This has left grocers and those dealing with food delivery with multiple openings.
According to a report by NPR and Market Watch, there are many retail and delivery companies looking to fill open positions during the ongoing coronavirus. In fact, Grocery delivery company Instacart has an opportunity for almost 300,000 gig workers while Walmart and Amazon are looking to add at least 150,000 and 100,000 workers respectively.
Moreover, the food joints that are open for take-out and delivery are also seeing a surge in their business and have open positions for interested workers. This includes Pizza Hut and Papa John’s Pizza, which have more 20,000 vacant positions – for temporary and part-time workers.
